Almost one year ago, I walked into my new tech lounge with a new title, Digital Learning Coach. To be frank, I had no idea what to expect. I knew I loved trying new things; I knew I loved showing others new ideas; I didn’t know what that would look like in this brand new district role.
We are a K-12 building, graduating around 55 per year. We have never had a digital learning coach; through a grant from the Indiana DOE we were able to get this new position up and running. But what exactly would I be doing every day? What exactly was my job description? I had a vision in my head, but let’s just say it was more than that.
I read on Twitter a post about wanting a job description for a tech coach job and the response “Anything and everything.” Truer words have never been spoken.
What does a day or a week look like as a digital learning coach? No 2 days are ever the same, and I can say I have done things I never even thought I would.
So here is my job description for a new digital learning coach starting with the obvious and moving the more obscure!
So maybe the easiest way to post the position is just like the response on Twitter… ANYTHING and EVERYTHING! Be prepared to google, ask questions, and learn something new every day.
Do I love my new job? Yes! Are there days I don’t eat lunch until after 2 or not at all? Yes. Would I change my decision and go back to the high school English classroom? Nope. I’ll stay right where I am, crazy job description and all.
